This party sized tray of buffalo chicken nachos is topped with buffalo chicken, cheddar, blue cheese, avocado and scallions.
Last night I decided to watch the Pro Bowl as an excuse to eat nachos. Unfortunately the game was less than exciting (now I know why no one watches that game), but at least my dinner did not disappoint!
I love trying different takes on the traditional nachos. When I first moved to Memphis, I was introduced to BBQ nachos which are amazing! My favorite is when it is served with shredded cheese instead of the cheese sauce. Just depends on the restaurant, and I have therefore developed favorite establishments for my BBQ nacho cravings.
When I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it as well. It was very flavorful and surprisingly filling – perfect because I may have eaten the entire pan otherwise. Of course I also dipped mine in some Ranch… O:-)
I also love that the toppings are layered between more layers of chips instead of just all being piled on top. Gotta distribute the goodness!
